ISLAMABAD: Ruckus erupted in Parliament as opposition threatened to leave the joint session over Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Mushahid Ullah’s statement today (Thursday).

Addressing the meeting, Mushahid Ullah criticized Bilawal Bhutto over his yesterday’s media talk and said that Pakistan Peoples Party would not win 2028 elections and their leaders will be in the jail while PM Nawaz would again come into authority.

PML-N Senator said that 558 people exposed in Panama Leaks belong to PPP while PM Nawaz’s name was not there.

He also said that PPP leaders give lists of Sikh militants to their agents.

Meanwhile, Speaker Ayaz Sadiq directed the minister to talk on Occupied Kashmir issue but he continued to discuss national politics.

He also said that billions of rupees were wasted in Larkana but no development project was launched so far.

PPP leaders became furious over Mushahid Ullah’s statement and threatened to stage walk out of the Assembly.

Khurshid Shah asked that why we are not ready to listen each others’ stance calmly on one platform.

He complained that government officials abuse anyone they want.

On the other hand, Aitzaz Ahsan lashed out at PML-N for holding in-camera All-Party Conference as leader Mohammad Zubair said he had seen the proceeding in monitoring cell.

He said India is afraid of pro-Kashmir movements due to which it has backed off from all the claims regarding surgical strike.

He said that India has separated Pakistan in SAARC which is deplorable and demanded the premier to appoint an experienced foreign minister.

Now ‘G G Brigade’ would bash me badly, he added.

Aitzaz Ahsan further asked Nawaz Sharif to take name of Kulbhushan Yadav at international level to unveil the real face of India.

Mushahid Ullah apologized as Senator Zafar-ul-Haq tried to cool down the matter.

The Parliament session called for the strategy over Kashmir issue became fish market due to political differences of the parties.
